    Yes Lert, Kelvin Heights it is. Taken from a plane, but paragliders do regularly fly over the area and the Hills Golf Club was another clue. Well done! It is now a FREE TURN so be the first to post ...
  • Replied in Clue
    .....particularly when gliding in tandem saves learning the ropes. And there are another five golf courses nearby....if you don't like the heights you could try the hilly one.
  • Where? Should be relatively easy for some high fliers.....
  • Hi Lert, are we looking at Chatham Island, off the coast of Western Australia? (According to Wiki named as Cape Chatham by George Vancouver aboard the HMS Discovery in 1791, and subsequently ...
  • As we have no takers I’ll pass the baton to Hans who obviously knows the answer. We are in Paihia township looking out towards Motumaire Island in The Bay of Islands, NZ. Charles Darwin visited ...
  • Replied in Hint
    He doesn’t appear to have mentioned the dolphins, but an evolutionary Englishman took a red gurnard home from here. It seems he didn't really take to the place though.

  • Hi Trafford, could we be in the Old Town Square in Eureka, California? Please offer a free turn if right, just had another 12 hour day looking after grandsons and really in need an early night.
  • Gary, I think we might be looking at The Abbey of Montecassino, just west of the town of Cassino, Italy? Please offer a free turn if right.

  • Replied in Upwards view
    One of only a very few of these left in the world…. .....where’s the roof gone?
  • Name of the heritage building please. We are in in the CBD of a southern city.
  • Gary, could we be in the wee chapel at Hacienda Los Miradores, Mairena del Alcor, Spain? Please offer a free turn if correct.
  • That might tempt our Dales friend back Pat. ;-)
  • Sorry Trafford, it's just out of Blenheim in NZ. Well worth a visit if you are interested in that era: http://www.omaka.org.nz/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omaka_Aviation_Heritage_Centre Regards, ...
  • Hi Pat, yes spot-on, the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre it is! A quite fascinating display with major input from Sir Peter Jackson and Weta Workshop. I hope to visit it again after Stage Two is ...
